Rainbow Mormon: 005: My Conversion Therapy Story Part 1

In today’s episode I begin to share my experience with conversion therapy and why myself and others found ourselves involved in these practices. If you have questions about this type of therapy or about my experience, please send me a message and I will try to answer your questions.


As I mentioned in the episode, I am doing some research on the suicide epidemic in Utah.  Utah has a significant youth suicide problem especially among LGBTQ youth. If you haven’t already, please take this survey. I need as many people as possible even those not from Utah, please share this and please spread this. I have had 700 responses but I would like to get 1000. I am needing anybody but if you fit into any or all of the following I need your input even more. Male, heterosexual, not raised Mormon, not from Utah. If you don’t fit those categories please still take the survey and share it with as many people as possible. Thanks!

  1. Thank you for sharing your story, and for doing this series. It’s good that people like you are being able to share your experiences with such a large audience.

    One thing though: be careful about how you interpret what you get from your survey. It’s actually not the size of a survey which makes it more valid, but how well it represents the target population. Ideally you want a random sample (this is almost never actually possible) and the farther you stray from that the less confident you can be in the results you get. How you’ve set it up appears to be a convenience sample and because of that you really can’t generalize what you find there to the state in general.

    I’ve worked for quite some time on surveys professionally and would be happy to chat with you about them if you ever want to.

  2. I can’t access your survey because the link is not live and it is too long to copy the full link from the podcast page.
